the president strongly defend one of the united states' deadliest and most effective weapons against would-be terrorists. and in a cnn exclusive, the brother of al qaeda's top leader now says there is a way to reconciliation and peace. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room"." >>> all that coming up. we begin with a very public and new escalation of some tension between president obama and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. israeli sources tell me the white house at least for now has rejected prime minister netanyahu's request to meet with him later this month to discuss iran's nuclear program. the israelis were told a meeting isn't possible because of the president's schedule, schedule won't permit it even when they offer to have the prime minister come to washington from new york where he'll be addressing the united nations. the white house is pushing back saying the president and prime minister simply won't be in new york at the same time this month to address the u.n. but this is just the tip of the icebe iceberg. in a much bigger disagreement right now over iran's suspected q
of the united states that still views the united states as a problem, you know, 300-plus million people that view america and the west as an enemy. and so this is the ideology that we continue to combat, and i think that there has been a reticence in recent years to even call it that, to include the word islam when talking about this ideology, but i think it's incredibly important, and not because islam is the problem but modern islam is the solution. when you take a look online and take a look at the messaging out there you see a good deal of intolerance. a lot of the messages has been dialed back. they are not overtly calling for violence as they did pre 9/11. you are still seeing a hatred and utter distain for western values that come through there and i think that continues to power this ideology, and perhaps, again, not driving us to violence, but certainly seeing, you know, probably stopping just short of that, and so the question that i have is, at what point do they just turn that up just a little bit and the violence could begin again? jenna: a lot of work to be done. thank you
tells all about pakistan's spy agency. saying that pakistan's government hates the united states and only pretending to like us to get aid money. i guess we suspected it? >> i think what the doctor has focused on is the inner service intelligence service, isi, the arm of the military that helped arm the mujahedin, that helped create taliban. >> greta: and haqqani network? >> they have funded them for more than 20 years fighting the soviets. it's no surprise. i think isi hates the united states. the issue has been whether the radicals will take over the country and supply of nuclear weapons. >> greta: is the isi part of the rad kalsz? >> absolutely. >> greta: who is securing the nuclear weapons? >> not the isi. but there is no doubt to me that those weapons are incredibly vulnerable. that is why the strategy of the united states is to grit our teeth and talk to what is left of the civilian government and authority and to the military that are not radical and prevent this cancer from taking over. >> greta: thinking why are we giving this money, billions of dollars who people who ha
, whatever becomes president of the united states. we have to make sure they can work with congress. it doesn't matter what your ideas are. if you don't have a congress working with you. while we're focusing on the two candidate, we also heed to focus on the congress and president of the united states working together. so far we haven't had great luck with that. >> it starts at home. we have to work with our little girl, teaching them to advocate for themselves to go in and ask for a raise. use your voice like the boys do. >> in woman's tennis, we have a lot of opportunity. women stood up for ourselves in the '70s, led by billie jean king who said we'll pay for the same amount of men. just recently we're able to have equal pay. because we're working as hard. >> i'm curious, you guys in the work place, i've employed thousands of women over the years. what i found without exception, men would come in asking for raises, if i don't get a raise -- women apologize -- if seen -- >> celebrate yourself. >> that's interestingly fuf, you hit the nerve. that's what is going to change. not from the top up
these numbers, you'll say there has to be a way. here's the bottom line. in 2011, the united states took in about $1.1 trillion in income taxes. these are individual income taxes. but look at the bottom number below it. i mean, this makes my jaws drop. total tax break, credits, exclusions, your mortgage interest deductions, state and local taxes. more money than we took in. okay, whatever you think about specific deduction, this screen is everything you need to know about how our tax system is really broken. so ending the state and local deduction alone would be $862.2 billion according to the cbo. the mortgage interest deduction, $214.6 billion. now, those are exactly the deductions mitt romney said he'd cut at a closed door fund-raiser back in april. a reporter at the event wrote quote mitt romney said i'm going to probably eliminate for high income people the second home mortgage deduction, romney said. adding he would also eliminate for state income and property taxes as well. he made it clear it's for higher income people he wants to get rid of some of these deductions and mitt romn
to judge the worth and value of a man, the president of the united states, in this election. do we use the right criteria? >> no. you know, i think one of the reasons i got interested in doing this piece, kind of walking in obama's life, was it struck me just looking at it from afar that some of the problems that used to affect the evaluation of pro athletes pro sports has gotten over, sort of like how to separate out luck from skill and how not to blame, you know, assigning credit and blame where credit and blame is due on a baseball field, but we don't really do in political life, especially with the president. he's forever credited and blamed for things that he actually has often very little control over. >> you played a kind of game with the president where you said to him, mr. president, let's assume you're no longer president and i'm president, meaning you. >> yeah. >> what are the things i need to know about this job? and you took a few passes. >> i had to do it a few times. it took him a little while for him to get used to the idea that i was president. he didn't like that. >>
